We are a group of over 110 Danes and Brits who meet informally once a month for food/ drinks and to chat på dansk/engelsk.

This month 18 of us (the maximum number allowed) hired Lundums' private room for Sunday Lunch and had the most marvellous afternoon there.

Frederik from Lundums was the perfect host, raconteur, waiter and barman. Very charming and polite and with unending patience, even when a few of us arrived late.

The selection of dishes in "det kolde bord" was amazing and we were particularly impressed with the extra dishes provided for the non fish-eating vegetarians.

The decor in the private dining room downstairs is lovely and there was plenty of room for the 18 of us plus a baby.

We had a brilliant time and can't wait to go again.

Thank You Lundums.

Being an impoverished student, reading "Danish Language and Culture" at University, I have, for ages, longed to try London's only Danish restaurant.

I knew it was quite a pricey establishment. Imagine my delight when a friend took me there for a surprise early birthday treat. I was certainly not disappointed !

We sat outside, at one of 4 small tables. There were lovely flowers and a typically Danish candle on each one. I have never seen heavier or whiter table linen! To guard against the cold, we were each given a soft blue blanket but it was not necessary, as there was an outdoor "mushroom" type heater, which the hunky, blue-eyed waiter rushed to light for us, immediately upon our arrival.

My friend opted for the 3 course set menu @ £21.50. I chose a la carte but everything was so delicious, that we could not resist swapping occasional spoonfuls from each other's plates.

Paul started with Danish cured/smoked ham with melon and summer leaves; whereas I opted for layers of smoked salmon and creamy potato salad. This was served with a tangy sauce and a few drops of what tasted like red caviar on the side. I savoured every mouthful.

For his main course, my dining partner had "medisterpølse" and creamy savoy cabbage, which were sweet tasting homemade Danish sausages.

Our waiter recommended that (as it was a special occasion) I might like to try one of the house specialities "sprængt And." This apparently takes 52 hours to prepare and are slices of old-fashioned cured duck which are then roasted and served with a basket of summer vegetables and new potatoes. Even priced at £16.75, it was superb - My only criticism was that the new potatoes were so nice, I could have eaten twice as many as I was given.

We just about had room for dessert and here both of us chose the same thing. Danish is a difficult language for foreigners to master. Perhaps the most awkward phrase of all is name of a typically Danish pudding.

This is the famous "Rødgrød med Fløde." It's a lovely, thick, set, smooth-tasting mixture of strawberries and other fruits, served with lashings of single cream. Every mouthful was pure heaven.

It really made my day, when the waiter complimented me on my pronunciation and gave me a little ripple of applause.

Coffee and tiny chocolate covered macaroons followed but we could not leave with sampling some fiery Danish snaps (Red Aalborg) to toast my approaching birthday. Skål !

We had a lovely time. The food, service and cosy atmosphere ("hyggelig" as the Danes would say) was superb. Including a bottle of house wine and a 12½ per cent service charge, our bill came to around £80.00. It was worth every penny.
